The dude who sent that is brave...sucks for you guys though, could have bought a t.v or something with that
OP's husband paid for an antique samurai sword. They didn't get what they agreed to pay for. Judging by OP's husband's reaction, he had already paid and should have gotten the sword. The guy scammed them out of $400. Doesn't matter if it was on Craigslist or not, it's still grounds for a lawsuit.
108- You misunderstood what I was saying. Ofcourse OP has a valid case but I doubt the scammer has anything OP would want if the scammer already spent the money. And he would most likely still take a loss if it goes to court. 125- I agree with all accept the last sentence. Noone deserves to have this happen but he shouldn't have sent the money first. He can just chalk it up as lesson learned.
Excuse me. I'm a prince in Nigeria who has recently inherited a large sum of money. If you are able to lend me $400 to remove the money from bank, I would have access to millions of dollars which I would then share with you. Please reply promptly so we may both enjoy my fortune.
Good luck claiming the money back. When you submit your claim, don't forget to add a message asking who the troll is now.
Why would he think it would be okay to spend that kind of money without having seen the item first? Unless it's from a reputable auction house, you really shouldn't buy things online without having at least seen pictures or certificates of authenticity first and even then you should be cautious. Your husband is a moron.
Usually you can tell when it's a scam on Craigslist. It's pretty obvious . Usually the scammers are not from the US which you can't really trace or ever get your money back. That's why if you ever buy something from someone with broken English on Craigslist DON'T DO IT.
